Weezer’s Pinkerton/Blue Album Tour Is Coming To Roseland In December


The concept: Weezer spend two nights in each city, two sets per night, the second set both times consisting of “greatest hits” (I’m quoting here, not scare-quoting) and tunes from their new Hurley, which is evidently not disastrous, and begins with the song “Memories,” as in “Memories/Make me want to go back there,” which explains the first set: Their self-titled “Blue Album” debut in its entirety on night #1, and the once-maligned, now-deified Pinkerton on night #2. Yes, it’s “THE MEMORIES TOUR” DRIVEN BY STATE FARM®, and it will be arriving here, appropriately, just before Christmas:

The tour hits Roseland December 17 (Blue Album) and 18 (Pinkerton); tickets are on sale to the general public next Saturday, Oct. 16. As a cognitive exercise, try and figure out which one will sell out first. Rest of the dates below (Blue Album always first), if you want to travel with this thing:
